A ‘Who to Call’ list is in the works. So if you have issues with things like: development, noise, transportation etc., you’ll know where to best direct your concerns.
I was wondering if there was anyone there who does financial counselling or help with ad lancing your budget?
Hello Martin, As per above, the list has a slightly different focus. However, if you could send more details to email@example.com the Board can review and discuss. Thanks, Jennifer
It seems to me that our community is going through a transformation with the number of in-fills being constructed in our neighborhood. We have just completed that process, having lived next to a beautiful little home that was torn down to build a super-side-by-side made of metal and concrete. The process was painful and lasted a year and a half. We had to learn a lot in a very short period of time…what does our zoning allow, what by-laws apply, how close can the in-fill be to our property line, how much closer can the fireplace projection be to our property line, can they pump cement across our property and over the roof of our home, can they cut down our trees, what happens when they damage our fence, our driveway, what happens when they arrange to have our power shut off to move their hydro line, and what happens when they dig across the property line to expose the foundation of our garage. We had a lot to learn very quickly. I would venture to say it would be beneficial to have a section supporting neighbors who are about to go through this process. I can tell you we felt totally on our own to fend off the challenges that comes with an infill that looks nothing like the rest of the homes on our street. There is a third story roof top terrace with a panoramic view into the back yards on our street and the street behind us. It changes everything in the neighborhood.
Thank you Dean. We really appreciate your comments. This information will really help us focus as we try to create a list that will be useful to the ever changing dynamics of this neighbourhood.
Dean I would like to know more about what you learned during this process as I am about to go through the same thing myself.
I am happy to share what we learned through the process. It was a 2 year adventure that isn’t quite over yet. Feel free to contact me through firstname.lastname@example.org
Our property is located at 639 Churchill. We are proposing a plan to demolish our current home and construct two new semi’s. The focus of our design is on environmentally friendly building. We intend to live in one of the new homes and sell the other. Is there a process for us to share our detailed plans with the community association and respond to comments or concerns in advance of the public committee of adjustment meeting?
Sorry if this is the wrong spot, I was just wondering if you have a list of local environmentally friendly businesses? I would be interested in being put on that list. We use recycled tires to pave driveways, walkways, patios, stairs, garage floors, around pools, etc. Thanks.
